USG aims to slash coming tuition hike

Next year's tuition may not increase as much as past years if the state uses some of its budget surplus to fund ASU - and Undergraduate Student Government is using that hope to get students mobilized.

The Arizona Board of Regents were supposed to set tuition at their March meeting, but decided to delay their decision on resident undergraduate tuition until the state Legislature appropriates its budget, which includes a $875 million surplus.

Stockfisch catching on quickly


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Sophomore catcher Austin Stockfisch was named to the Whataburger Classic All-Tournament Team after batting .385 in the three tournament games earlier this month.
Throughout the course of a season, every team is going to encounter some key injuries. So, when freshman catcher Preston Paramore went down prior to the Whataburger Classic, ASU coach Pat Murphy looked to his bench for someone to step up. "We were practicing and Paramore pulled his hamstring again, so I got ready," sophomore catcher Austin Stockfisch said. "I've kind of been ready to go because you always have to be if you're the backup guy."

With junior C.J. Retherford playing in the infield and junior Seth Dhaenens not experienced enough to play behind the plate yet, Murphy turned to Stockfisch to get the job done. "Stocky went in there for those first three games and we didn't miss a beat," Murphy said. "He was very good at blocking baseballs and very good at receiving."

Back to School: The 27-year-old Undergrad

Sitting in the back of the class, the girls behind me are having a heated debate about the difference between "vodka-drunk" and "tequila-drunk." In front of me, a guy is discussing his sexual adventures with "what's her name." To both my right and left, there is some furious Blackberry texting going on.

Sitting in the back of a 200-plus student lecture class is the collegiate equivalent of the elementary school back-of-the-bus ride. It's where all the cool kids sit, and nothing good can come of it.

Judging Covers: The Sound of Art

If a paint brush were a musical instrument, what would your favorite painting sound like? This question may unfortunately never be answerable, but in the meantime, a new exhibit at the ASU Art Museum offers a chance to look at how the visual and aural arts may be related.

The exhibit, simply titled "Art Inspires Music," will feature paintings from the museum's permanent collection side-by-side with songs written by local musicians. They aren't just any songs, though -- each song was written over a period of two months by the musicians after choosing a painting to work with.
